Nice one bob!
What about this thread
It really pisses me off.
Shiro786, it's just rude to post spoilers and fookin stupid too. Some people actually want to be surprised.
SNAPE KILLS DUMBLEDORE
btw you could already pirate the book you know
Books are one of the things that can't be pirated properly. I've read some books in eBook format on my DS, but it's just too much for mah eyes ...
You can always get audio books. Those are easy to pirate, and they are 1:1 original copy.
The first model of GBA SP was so perfect for my reading purposes
I have the audio books as MP3's I downloaded, none of them were perfect.
Took me 3 sets of downloads to get 1 set that was good enough to listen to.
I also have the hard back adult books and I am reading them whilst listen, Stephen Fry is a really good reader.
EDIT: There is a copy of book 7 online, that was taken with photos. Its not that good in places (apprently) but with some photoshop work it can be.
harry potter sucks... this was the best part in one of the movies i saw.
By the way, what's the difference between the normal and adult versions? Is it only the cover?
Personally I find the series some of the most puerile nonsense ever committed to print (I stuggled 3/4 of the way through the first and got stuck reading parts aloud for the later stuff) but then I have more Eddings under my belt than I care to think about.
@Jax nothing more than cosmetic changes as far as I know.
As for reading electronically, I read most of the discworld series on my SP two odd years ago. Scientific reports are fine on PC as are short stories but anything fictional clocking more than 40 pages (standard word sort of thing) is pushing it.
I personally love Harry Potter, it's been one of those series of books that I've followed for practically half my life. I'm sad to see it end.
Don't worry the japanese will recreate a whole new series of book whether or not harry dies or not!
Magic brought harry back to life!
I got the .pdf version of the book. Its all text and it looks fine to me. They're desperate to get this book off the internet as the places that do have it are having the file removed quickly.
its not a real version
if it starts with harry looking morosely at privet drive, its the fanfic
if it starts with 2 men popping out of nowhere you have the real version and you need to pm how to get the pdf
The real book is out on the internet, and there will be NO spoilers or discussion about the leak here at all. The publishers of the series are getting hardcore about this, going to any and all forums that even have the words Harry Potter mentioned once. The GameFAQs board was being patrolled by the publishers themselves and sent legal noticed to CJayC simply for the fake spoilers being put up.
If it says anything, the Gaia Online owner got a subpoena for something they had nothing to do with. Of all the things GBATemp could get yelled at for, it won't be for a book.
Good to hear how serious they are taking this...
I kinda read that spoiler thread you just locked down, and I hope what I read wasn't true..=\
Regardless, I can't wait to get the book on the 21st. I got the 6th one at some random convenience store for a much cheaper price, so let's hope I can do the same for this one!
DELETED BY ITECH!
(People will think the crap I described, based on what fans have been saying for years, actually happens in the book. I don't know what happens since the book isn't out yet and I'm not devoting a microsecond of my time to stealing a book from the internet )
My prediction: For the first time ever, a non-fag will read a Harry Potter book from cover to cover. Media will be present for the event and crowds of disbelieving gawkers will be standing by.
